Have received a message from someone on line who says the Nellis (Boone Co.) WV mine disaster occured on Nov. 6,l943. His relatives (Gunnoe)were among the miners killed. He has a video of the momument placed there and the names of all the miners are on that plaque. He has to find the video to get the list.
